I might be missing something, but to me the solution to hostile allies is obvious: do it SC2 way, in SC2 the player can run away in any battle (at least with the flagship)...
137  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Favourite sci-fi book on: May 16, 2005, 04:14:25 am
After having a lively discussion about favourite sci-fi movies, it's only natural to discuss about favourite sci-fi books...

My allt-time favourite sci-fi book(s) have to be Isaac Asimov's original three Foundatio-novels. I first read them when I was ~10 years old, and they left a permanent impression on me, and I've read them a dozen times since (both translated and in english).

Arthur C. Clarke's 2001, 2010 and 2061 are also great.
When talking about contemporary sci-fi, Dan Simmons with his Hyperion-saga is one of my favourites, and  Alastair Reynolds especially hits a nerve with his 'hard sci-fi' novels.

Mentoning 'hard' sci-fi, one must not forget Hal Clemens & Mission of gravity...

For starters, I have to apologize for my ramblings....
BUT I've been following this thread (amognst others), and even if I was a wee bit sceptical at first, now I really hope that TW:L eventually comes to life, it seems very promising indeed  Cool

I'm waiting for a Forbidden Planet remake.

2001 was a little hard to follow. Actually. . .I'm not sure if it can be followed. Does anyone know why the last scene is of an embryo floating in space?



The embryo is a newborn 'Starchild' (or one in process of realizing its potential), the thing David Bowman became. Of course it's a symbolic presentation of 'reality' (reality in 2001).

Fronter: First Encounters remake is number 1 on my list of "want 'em":s.

About those allready made: Maniac Mansion deLuxe is great, and OF COURSE, UQM is awesome! And I just found an ELITE remake (pc-Elite w/ C64 Elite sounds), ahh the rush of nostalgia.... Grin

The current CVS version is 0.33, not 3.3.

Good. I thought so, and now it's confirmed  Cool
142  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Destroying the Sa Matra? on: March 16, 2005, 02:31:29 pm
Is this correct:
UQM 0.3 = UQM Alpha 3.0 ?
143  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Next Release? on: January 25, 2005, 03:03:03 am
There's going to be another release? Shocked

GREAT!  Grin
